It's a sad statement to make, East Texas animal shelters continually stay at or near capacity and in some cases, some shelters are over capacity and that's when shelter directors must turn away those who are trying to surrender an animal. Oftentimes when that happens these unwanted domesticated dogs and cats are dumped out on county roads and left to survive on their own.

That is a horrible thought. These animals have so much love to give and depend upon us for their care and protection as well. They are dependent upon us to feed them when they get hungry not to leave them alone and terrified on the side of the road.

To help alleviate overpopulation and overcrowding, one East Texas animal shelter is offering free animal adoptions.  Throughout July with proof of a donation to a reputable charitable organization.

Besides children, there is nothing in this world that is going to give you unconditional love every time you walk in the front door or greet them at the back door than a dog. They live to please you while you rub their back or belly as their tail wags continually.

During July Tyler Animal Services is offering FREE ANIMAL ADOPTIONS with a donation to Special Olympics of Texas.

Tyler Animal Services is partnering with the non-profit to raise awareness and funds to support Special Olympics. Their mission is to provide year-round sports training and athletic competition in a variety of Olympic-type sports for children and adults with intellectual disabilities, giving them continuing opportunities to develop physical fitness, demonstrate courage, experience joy, and share gifts, skills, and friendship with their families, other Special Olympics athletes and the community.

With proof of a donation in any amount, you can then adopt an animal from Tyler Animal Services. The shelter has nearly 40 dogs and cats that are looking for a new fur-ever home.

By supporting Special Olympics of Texas, Tyler Animal Services will waive the normal $120 adoption fee for dogs and $80 for cats. When you adopt an animal, the animal will have been spayed or neutered, microchipped, and vaccinated.

Donate to a wonderful cause and help save an animal's life at the same time and you will receive love from your new pet unconditionally.
